Zipcar Announces Expansion into White Plains, NY

Zipcar Inc. and White Plains, N.Y. Mayor Thomas Roach announced June 26 the expansion of the Zipcar car sharing service into the city of White Plains.

The Zipcar program will launch with eight vehicles in three locations in downtown White Plains, including the following:

  • White Plains Center Garage at 237 Martine Ave.
  • Hamilton-Main Garage at 365 Hamilton Ave.
  • Bronx Street Lot at 3 Hamilton Ave. adjacent to the White Plains Train Station

Zipcar worked closely with the city to determine the best locations for the Zipcars, which will be in areas with heavy foot traffic and access to public transportation. "We're thrilled to welcome Zipcar to the city of White Plains, as another step toward providing alternate transportation options to residents. Zipcar is a convenient and environmentally responsible way to travel and offers residents who live in downtown White Plains an affordable alternative to owning a personal vehicle," Mayor Roach said.

"This expansion is an extension of our successful Zipcar program in New York City, where many people depend on Zipcar every day to run errands, attend business meetings, visit friends and take road trips to explore all that the tri-state area has to offer,” said Charlie Irons, Zipcar New York's general manager. “We hope this new program in White Plains will help residents and those who commute back and forth between New York City to get out and Zip by giving them access to a car without the high costs and hassles of car ownership."

The Zipcar program in White Plains is available to local residents and visitors, as well as to employees of local businesses through the company's "Zipcar for Business" program that offers discounted driving Monday through Friday.
